Acclaimed director Michael Lindsay-Hogg talks about his boyhood and coming-of-age in the worlds of theater, film, and television, growing up the son of glamorous Warner’s movie star Geraldine Fitzgerald, and his distant father was an English baronet from a family whose money came from the China trade. His memoir Luck and Circumstance: A Coming of Age in Hollywood, New York, and Points Beyond tells of his struggle to make sense of his life, questions of missed chances, and the rumor—never proved or disproved—that his real father is Orson Welles.
Michael Lindsay-Hogg didn’t set out to become father of the music video – but that’s just what the pioneering filmmaker did…with a little luck, and circumstance. He got his start in 1965 at the British music show, Ready, Steady Go, and went on to direct The Beatles’ Let It Be, The Rolling Stones’ Rock And Roll Circus and much more. He joins us today with a new memoir, called “Luck and Circumstance: A Coming of Age in Hollywood, New York and Points Beyond.”
